US President Joe Biden signed a bill on Friday approving appropriations through December 16, including an additional $12.4 billion to support Ukraine, the White House said, TASS reported.
The initiative was earlier approved by the US Congress.
"On Friday, September 30, 2022, the president signed into law the Continuing Appropriations and Ukraine Supplemental Appropriations Act, 2023, which provides fiscal year 2023 appropriations to Federal agencies through December 16, 2022, for continuing projects and activities of the Federal Government and includes supplemental appropriations to respond to the situation in Ukraine," the White House said in a press release.
The bill to continue funding the government was to be passed by both houses of the Congress before Friday midnight, local time. Otherwise, there would have been a partial government shutdown.
